The view from the combine

Here’s what I’ve been looking at for the last several days.  Rows and rows of soybeans stretching out before me.  The reel and the sickle bringing the dried bean plants into the harvester, removing the soybeans from the pod and putting them in the hopper.

Soybean harvest is now finished for us.  It was not a fantastic year.  My best field was about 40 bushels per acre.  My worst field was 34 bushels per acre.  I’d say we had a less than average yield this year.  We now close the bins until the beans are sold.

Filling the wagon

Soybean harvest is done, now it’s back to corn.
